@resynth1943 Hahaha, right. I meant my VPS needs, I try not to run database servers and rely as much as possible on plain text.
5$/month can do just so much.
It even has a koreader plugin if you have an e-reader. And tho there are extensions for the browsers mentioned before, there are also standalone applications and probably some other open-source clients exist.
@betoissues yeah, sync is quite a good feature.
Outside of Firefox / Chrome, I haven't really found a cross-platform browser that does it well.
You could use something like Syncthing or Nextcloud Bookmarks, but I know that doesn't nearly cover what proper sync can do.
I know Brave has a sync feature, but I'm not sure how good it is.
@resynth1943 I'm using Syncthing (ditched Nextcloud trying to keep my VPS minimal) and have read about xBrowserSync (which work for Chrome and FF, so no point) and Wallabag which requires an extra application.
I'll have to look closer at it, but with the current state if one wants to stay away from Chrome/FF, syncing stuff doing so externally is the best option.
@resynth1943 Sure, thanks! I'm currently using Firefox but it's been some time since I started feeling a bit uncomfortable about it.
I've heard of Brave but never tried it. In the past I've used qutebrowser, but had a rough time with multiple devices and sync'ing.
That without taking mobile into the picture. So, simply using Firefox for convenience atm.
Fixed one of my concerns here by adding a mbsync script to sync. Apparently bindings on aerc may also have chained commands so now I can send ':move trash<Enter>:exec fm<Enter>'
The youtube-dl team backed down, they removed functionality necessary for it to access some videos.
I'm not faulting them, maybe they live in a repressive country where their lives are under threat, they don't owe it to us.
But yesterday youtube-dl was accessible everywhere BUT Github, today partial-youtube-dl is accessible on Github, and from now on the main developed branch will be partial-youtube-dl. That's it, the boogiemen won.
@catherine while it's important, one does not simply learn how to program to get hired by some company. they're taking our dreams away!!
